Good Monday to everyone! As I mentioned Friday, hubby left to meet up with some techie friends on Saturday and so I and the girls went shopping. I was so amazed with all of the back to school/college deals that I stocked up on some supplies (even thought I don’t have any school age children!). Notebooks for $.10, washable magic markers for $2, colorful bath towels for $3, and so much more! My favorite item I bought was a dry/erase calendar board that I put up on the fridge. I know, I know. How can one be so excited about a dry/erase calendar board (that’s also magnetic)? Our other calendar sat on the kitchen counter and was not looked at on a daily basis. I can’t tell you how many times the weekend would arrive and my husband would say, ” I didn’t know we were (fill in the blank)”. Now, each time my husband or I visit the fridge, we can see what the week holds or make updates.
Did I mention what a project packed weekend it was? I had time to dream up new projects while finishing up some still in progress. One such project was the number wall cards that I hung above my daughters’ toy shelf. I got these wall cards a little while back and wasn’t sure what to do with them. Here’s what it looks like…
My daughter just loved the cards on the wall! I used purple velvet ribbon pinned on each end and alligator clips to hold the cards. The great thing about this setup is that I can change the cards to prints or artwork anytime.
